I ran into a similar problem when I upgraded my 486 from Sarge to Etch
and the upgrade hosed libc6 which is ofcourse fatal to the whole system.
Since neiter Etch nor Sarge's installer workes on this box (too little
memory), I'm trying out NetBSD.

Before you downgrade or reinstall, copy your /var/log and /etc files so
you can still work on this, or provide to someone working on this.
Remember that Sarge will only get security support for another year or
two (I forget which) so you'll want a solution by then.

Good luck,
